Day 2 Without Bush Administration Movement on Posada

Unwanted ally makes dilemma for Bush

Fidel Castro has reportedly led a protest march of one million people (!) past the US Diplomatic Mission in Havana, Cuba, demanding the extradition of Luis Posada Carilles. Posada was involved (CIA and FBI records show) with the 1976 mid-air bombing of a Cuban airliner, killing 73 people.

The US has 48 hours (from the time of his arrest) to either charge Posada with illegally entering the country, extradite him to Venezuela, or grant him asylum. My guess is they'll charge him with illegally entering the US and give him soft time in a minimum security Federal prison.

C'mon, Mr. President. Prove me wrong.

Send this post to someone who cares. Get the ball rolling.
